Stormy Days

Yesterday our family flew to Brisbane and back in the day – through storm clouds and over the bulging Wivenhoe and Somerset Dams. We arrived home to the tragic news…

Stormy Day

We are back
with survivor guilt.

While chaos and terror rained down
we were enjoying
a roller-coaster ride
flying high above.
Home again and we hear
the clouds that gently buffeted us
dumped tears of anguish
on families below.

death
……….destruction
………………………..despair

My heart is stormy
as tears fall like raindrops today.
